4.45/5 rDev -0.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 750ml bottle into Chimay Tulip.
A- Awesome dark brown leather that is murky, the head is off white/tan color that is there the entire time while I am drinking this beer just the best beer I have ever seen. Thick lacy foam that coats the glass to the last drop.... AWESOME
S- Great baking spices, cloves, the belgian yeast just jumps out at you, roasted chestnuts/walnuts, dark candied fruits, cherries. Too much, want to smell this all day.
T- Baking spices/cloves right away, belgian yeast is delicious, candied fruits, dates, cherries, and those roasted nuts followed by some nice light cocoa notes. Everything in the smell is followed in the taste, very good.
M- Still plenty of carbonation in this bad boy, almost too much, but it is a very nice fine carbonation that tingles your tounge showing its aging potential. You can't even tell that this has any alcohol in it, very well hidden.
D- Very nice, just starting to feel some of the effects of the alcohol that is lurking within this one.
I have one more 750ml bottle that I will keep for 10 years before I open, I really want to see how this ages.
